PRODUCT SHOWCASE ElectroneX to return in September After a one year break, Australia’s only dedicated trade event for the electronics industry will be held in Sydney in September. ElectroneX – The Electronics Design and Assembly Expo will be staged during 15-16 September at Rosehill Gardens Event Centre. In addition to featuring a wide range of electronic components, test and measurement products and other ancillary products and services, companies can also discuss their specific requirements with contract manufacturers that can design and produce turnkey solutions for particular applications. This is a must-see event for decision makers, managers, engineers and industry enthusiasts or those designing or manufacturing products that utilise electronics. The SMCBA Electronics Design & Manufacture Conference, held concurrently with the Expo, will feature a series of sessions on the latest hot topics and workshops over the two days. The full program can be viewed at www.smcba.asn.au Registration for the Expo is now open and all visitors are asked to pre-register to avoid queuing at the entrance. Visitors can register for free online at www.electronex.com.au Australasian Exhibitions and Events Pty Ltd Suite 11, Pier 35-263 Lorimer St Port Melbourne VIC 3207 Tel: (03) 9676 2133 mail: ngray<at>auexhibitions.com.au Web: www.auexhibitions.com.au Open Source USB Power Delivery software from Microchip USB Type-C with Power Delivery (PD) and open source software are two technologies leading the next wave of wired connectivity. Microchip’s new Power Delivery Software Framework (PSF) allows you to modify and own the IP in your USB-PD systems. By merging your code with Microchip’s fully functional PD stack, you have the flexibility to create different product offerings while choosing from a wide variety of Microchip SmartHubs, micros and standalone PD solutions for USB systems. Microchip’s PSF provides an open-source code base for power delivery and a comprehensive programming environment, removing the need for manufacturer dependence and making it easy for users to program micros and immediately modify PD code as their system evolves. Using this, customers can reduce time to market and overall bill of materials. Developers can also choose from an expanded family of Microchip controller options to host PD functionality, including the new UPD301B and Microchip Technology Inc. www.microchip.com UPD301C standalone PD controllers. The PD architecture’s open approach enables customers to easily add a USB-C/PD port to a wide range of embedded applications, while also allowing customers to reallocate unused pins or CPU memory to other system functions A range of Microchip SAM and PIC MCUs and dsPIC Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) are supported. The PSF solution gives designers the option to run PD on existing Microchip microcontroller infrastructure by adding the UPD350 PD transceiver, or by integrating PD into more complex product offerings with proprietary system code. The PSF is supported by Microchip’s MPLAB X IDE development environment. The PSF evaluation board can be purchased from: www. microchip.com/DevelopmentTools/ ProductDetails/PartNO/EV65D44A Silicon Labs’ EFM32PG22 microcontrollers now available at Mouser Mouser Electronics is now stocking the new EFM32PG22 (PG22) microcontrollers from Silicon Labs. The new Series 2 Gecko microcontrollers are ideal for energy-efficient and space-constrained applications in consumer electronics, personal hygiene devices, Internet of Things (IoT), and industrial automation devices. 106 Silicon Chip The microcontroller incorporates a low-power ARM Cortex-M33 core running at up to 76.8MHz, plus up to 512KB of flash and 32KB of RAM. The devices consume just 26μA/MHz in Active Mode at 38.4MHz and as little as 0.95μA in DeepSleep mode with 8KB of RAM retention. The PG22 development kit includes four different environmental sensors Australia’s electronics magazine and stereo PDM microphones, providing an ideal platform for the development of energy-friendly electronic devices.
